A shock defeat at Preston North End has stopped Bournemouth from being able to leapfrog Huddersfield Town into the automatic places for now, though the Cherries have four games in hand on the Terriers.
Peterborough have spent several months inside the relegation zone and are eight points adrift of safety with 12 games left to play.
With Nat Phillips, Jaidon Anthony and Ryan Christie returning to the team last time out against Preston, Bournemouth only remain without Robbie Brady, Junior Stanislas and Kieffer Moore through injury now.
Adam Smith will serve the first of his three-game ban during this fixture after being shown a red card against Preston and Jefferson Lerma will serve his fourth and final match ban following his red card against Birmingham City.
Posh goalkeeper Steven Benda pulled out during the warm-up against Huddersfield with illness and is now struggling with a back injury that may rule him out for this game. David Cornell is expected to continue in goal for Peterborough.
Bournemouth: Travers, Zemura, Kelly, Phillips, Laird; Billing, Cook, Cantwell; Anthony, Solanke, Lowe
Peterborough: Cornell, Beevers, Edwards, Knight; Coulson, Grant, Fuchs, Ward; Szmodics, Poku, Jones
Ones to watch
The last time these two sides met was at the end of September during a stalemate which saw Bournemouth only take one point home after a 0-0 draw.
